I gotta say this movie I never expected so many crazy and amazing thhings happen. As I haven't seen anyone do a review for this movie, I will be the first to do so. I'll make this a spoiler free review. As the story shows, Miyo "Muge" Sasaki is a headstrong girl who falls in love with her classmate, Kento Hinode. He takes no notice of her no matter how many times she tries to get his attention. So with this newfound magical secret that she discovered one night, she uses this power to persue him, but will it cost her humanity to get closer to him? The story itself is pretty good. It goes through the hardships between the characters and the side characters as well. It's giving like a life moral about relationships and hardships, almost like 'A Silent Voice' in a way. Even with Muge as she is shown to be the most happiest and craziest girl. It is nice to show that such happy people like Muge even struggle as well. Even choosing between her humanity and living as a cat. I love how each character has a use, they weren't made for sitting in the sidelines doing nothing.  The movie can be really calming and gives off a Studio Ghibli vibe to it. It brings many emotions to the movie, there were times I couldn't stop laughing, awing at the cuteness or I was just dumbfounded at the craziness in the movie.  The animation is gorgeous. The camera movements were outstanding and each detail was beautiful drawn out. Each colour was vivid it has so much detail and movement. It is like an eye candy. Like I said before, it even brings out the Studio Ghibli vibe for many scenes, I won't explain too much as I wants this to be spoiler free. It brings out so much life to the anime and in a creative way. I really enjoyed it and would recommend to watch it. (I'll come back to the music since I didn't pay too much attention while watching the movie.)
